I had my retirement party in the Millington, cheadle Hulme. I have worked at John Lewis for 19 years and we are trained to give good customer service. I had an excellent evening with my friends. The manager was around all the time to make sure everything was ok. Food was great and staff gave excellent service. Thank you

Well you read the reviews and think wow!! This is a standard example of staff review pushing! The atmosphere is dull, the menu offers a wide selection, the food is good but with no standard of service!! No check backs, no wine knowledge, no offer of more drinks, and a waitress with attitude bouncing around with a dirty cloth thrown... More

I went to The John Millington on Friday night for the first time ever and I will most definitely be making a return visit. We booked a table for eight which was ready and waiting for us upon our arrival. The food was exceptional! The service was amazing! The staff were super smart and could not do enough for us!...

My husband and I went to the John Millington as a special anniversary night out. We were greeted with a lively and comfortable welcome, especially by the staff who were full of "smiles" and attentive to our needs. We were shown to our table on arrival we were given the option of the restaurant (which was quieter) or the bar... More

We had a lovely meal on Valentines night. All 3 courses were really nice, in particular, the steak was exceptional - beautifully cooked and beautifully presented. We have eaten at the John Millington before and will definitely be back. PS. Looking forward to visiting to see the improvements, after it's current re-furb:-)

Went out for a Sunday roast with a date, after a long week at work. We'd had a drink or two in the bar area initially, then decided to take advantage of the quiet restaurant and sat down for our meal. 2 beef Sunday roasts were the order of the day, which were delivered fairly quickly, although this was not...

Came over to see a friend and found it to be a great place to have a few beers. Our barmaid Jacky typified the bubbly and friendly atmosphere of the place, would definitely recommend
